So, after six months of ignoring skylanders and saying how dumb it looked... My seven year old got me hooked.

I'm a completionist. It's a mental illness, but there it is... So we started with one and in seven days I have all but five.

One of ones I'm missing (in America) only comes in the gameboy 3ds version. I am trying. Hard not to get a 3ds, but I want that one. This one in fact.

http://www.gamingzap.com/skylanders-spyro-s-adventure-figure-dark-spyro.html

If you notice, in the UK and possibly a few others places they sell it individually. And I've confirmed online that it will work with the American version of the game.

So I request those of you in Europe or Asia check your stores for this and see if you can find it cheaper for me. Remember I'm a very good person to have as a friend and to be owed a favor...

Not horrible but that's still almost 30us. Add shipping and one I can return and it's almost cheaper to buy the 3ds version with its three characters.

Ill make you a deal. I was looking into buying one for other reasons. IF you dont find what your looking for by GenCon, ill buy the 3DS off of you -skylander. I would not mind that thing actually.

Just to clarify... It's the game that comes with the character, the 3ds is always separate. So what I need to sell is the 3ds Skylander portal of power.

I'm curious, what does the European 3ds version come with? Just the stealth elf?

Can't anyone help me out?

Does it matter if it is still in its original packaging?

Cliff you realize it is just a different paint job from the regular Spiro right?
I am curious what the other one is also, is it Whamshell?

From what I can tell it is not just a recolor. The in-game stats are off by one. i.e. one stat is -1 and one stat is +1. thats the only reason I want one. its similar, but technically different and I have a sickness.

and yes the other is WhamShell, what most people are missing. it'll show up at walmart eventually...

I'm a bit annoyed I missed the free 'flecked' one they gave out last month via the 800# that they didn't publicize and it IS just a recolor.

Next month there's supposed to be four mini figures through fritolay, so I'm not missing those.

so its subtle, but it exists... it also annoys me that such a figure is so difficultly obtained.

Sadly I saw a Whamshell, but did not know it was a difficult one to locate, or I would have bought it for OneThatWas. It is the only one he is missing as well. I have the game for the shop as well, but I'm not crazy enough to try and buy them all for the shop Smile .

no but I got an unpainted drill sergeant, ie all dull red. The drill sergeant is a walmart only item. If you want one and are unable to get one we could swap. They had lots two days ago.
